Codes are generally by city/town and not state. From the 3 experiences I've had, the following are some that I've run into.

On the decking, it must be at least 1/2" CDX PLYWOOD, (OSB not allowed in this town). The inspector had to see the X stamp on EACH SHEET, obviously the X side had to be up.

On re-roofs, a maximum of two layers of shingles, if there's already two on the house, both must be stripped, any damaged wood replaced.

Since for the past 10 years I haven't seen any NEW houses in CA getting comp shingles I'm assuming STATE FIRE CODES may be forcing the change to terra cotta.

Drop by the city inspector's office, they can probably give you a rough idea of what you're facing.
